Nail of the Day (NOTD)

Hi,

This is my first nails of the day.

I don't know how often I'll do a nails of the day (definitely not everyday) but I hope to do a nail of the day perhaps a couple of times a week.

Today, I'm wearing OPI's Flashbulb Fushia and Essie's Lilacism.




I honestly don't know why its taken me so long to get these because they are both absolutely stunning but if I had to choose one, I'd have to go with the OPI but only because I found it so easy to apply. I find the Essie polishes I have to be too thin so I need to apply 3 or more coats to get it on my nail the way I like it. I don't know if its just the Essie polishes I've bought, or if they all have the same formulation. I only have 3 Essie's in Turquoise and Caicos, Sand Tropez and Lilacism.

Flashbulb Fuscia's only my second OPI and I love it. I also own At First Sight which is a really pretty nude.

I'll have more nails of the day coming up because I have bought Mac's Surf Baby Collection nail colours in Ocean Breeze and Hangin Loose so I can't wait to show you those and I'm becoming a bit of a nail polish fiend so there'll definitely be more new nail polish to show you in the coming weeks and months.

I love pinks, corals (not too dark), pale minty greens, blues, lilac and purple's, yellows and oranges (not too dark) and black, dark brown etc. I don't like neons. I'm also a fan of glitter and shimmer, I like pearly ones too but I'd say I'm definitely more a pastel, glitter/shimmer kind of girl who likes matt as well. Although in Winter I do love my dark browns and blacks.

One thing I wish I could wear is a red shade. I've bought China Glaze's Ruby Pumps but its not a matt colour, its a glitter so its pretty safe. I look too pale to pull off a red and its the same with a red lipstick I just don't like red nails or lipstick on me, but I love and enjoy wearing red clothing!

If you have a recommendation for a brand and/or shade you think I should get, please comment, or comment on your favourite colours, brands etc. I like to know what other ladies are wearing on their nails too.
